Hi,
it just came to my attention, that on the eurocontrol DFS (german) airports i checked so far, does not have georeferenced departure/arrival charts avialble.
Due to the lack of rotating the pdf view on iOS, the geoerference overlay was a very good way to have landscape charts usable (and of the course the great increase of situational awareness).
So my question is: As far as I read here in the forum: Getting the charts geo-ref, was a manual process for each single chart. Is it sill like that?
Do you plan to get all PDFs that are to scale as geo-refs?
Is there anything that can be done to support you in that?

It would really like to use SD for my IFR Flights, but I don't feel comfortable having charts the wrong way on the display. And rotating the iPad is not an option, due to space (or better the lack of it) and I am running SD in split view with the IFD100 in IFR.

Cheers
Marco

Generally we need graticules around the outside of the chart showing latitudes and longitudes, OR a known location on the map plus scale and rotation.

Sure, understood.
The (at least german DFS) departure charts seems support these information ( I just had a short check on EDDE, EDDR, EDLN). For Example:

Ah, apologies, I should have said that we do not georeference SID and STAR charts currently.
